clinton administration we had a surplus, for the first time in recent memory. a huge tax cut where alan greenspan sat and told us the justification was that we were reducing the debt too fast. we would create uncertainties in the bond market because we were moving so quickly. but a unpaid tax cut, two unpaid wars, now we're told we can no longer afford, by some of our republican colleagues to provide a health security for people at 65 or 66 that you would like to do it but we can't afford to do it anymore. as it relates specifically to the proposal we just heard, the administration's statement on. i gather your opinion, mr. johnson, is that better than having a valentine's day cliff but if we keep moving in three months or one month or six months spurts the effect on economic growth will be damaging. >> absolutely. if we can pull up figure one from the written testimony. what you would get is the spike from august 2011 -- you're going have it every three months. that was a dangerous month for hiring. who wants to hire if you done know if there are going to payments made by the governmen

this is the first time in a long, long time since president clinton that i actually have real hope that we can get something done to save lives. it's been a tough battle. i would say to so many of the victims out there, there are times when we lose faith, there are times when we want to give up. all i can say is we can't give up. the shootings have only gotten worse. there are things we can could have done so many years ago that could have prevented so many of these killings. not only the mass killings, it is also the shootings that happen every single day. since what happened in connecticut, with those children and the teachers, 900 people have died from gun violence. i keep count. i keep count. because it is going to be up to all of us to try to talk to some of our members on both sides of the aisle that we as americans will stand with them if they stand with us and try to reduce gun violence. they do not have to be afraid of the radical n.r.a. i say thank you because there are many gun owners in this country that are good citizens and they should not be tagged with some of these astr

the so-called big deal in the budget. we're of the view that just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop. the economy in great shape and move toward a balanced budget. it started off in three phases. it started off with president bush's actions, the first president bush in terms of taxation before president clinton took office. and then the actions the president took in 1994 and then in 1997. well, we think there is a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt to g.d.p., our deficit to g.d.p. down around 3%, which is the basis of all economists left, right and center all agree on the areas we can begin to grow as a country. and as my grandfather used to say with grace of god and goodwill of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail now between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling and we may meet the goal which we set out to do, which is to have roughly a $4 trillion cut over 10 years in the long-term deficit and to put us on that path. talk didn't come here to about any of those import

. the greatest decrease in child poverty in america came under bill clinton with a republican congress in the late 1990's. that is just a fact. jeffrey is shaking his head. no, it is a fact. the lowest level of black children in poverty in history was 1997. you could make an argument that having a welfare system shift toward opportunity would work. >> i'm going to give you all the time you need. before that, what would you say then to those who read the "new york times" stories when they did to review 15 years after bill clinton's welfare to work program, that women and children were falling faster into poverty than anybody else? [applause] it was that program that helped push them in there? were they wrong? >> yes, but let me carry you two steps further. i have been working with a former california assembly leader on a project state-by- state to get people out of prison if they are there for non-violent crimes, to get them brought back into society. you cannot discuss how we will solve some of these problems without rethinking prison in america.
